Wendell Charles Burgat , Age: 90
April 05, 1927 -- July 31, 2017

Wendell was the son of Arthur and Irene (Snyder) Burgat. He was born April 5, 1927. He graduated from Topeka High School and immediately joined the Navy. He returned home when the war was over. Wendell married Ruby Johnson August 27, 1949. They had four children: Cheryl, Eileen, Kay, and Keith. Wendell worked for the United States Postal Service until he started a dairy farm southwest of Topeka around 1952. Wendell began working for the State of Kansas around 1959, starting out as a Computer Operator using keypunch cards and working his way up until he retired as a Systems Analyst in 1983. He was a member of the First Church of the Nazarene in Topeka. He rarely missed a chance to attend church and taught Sunday School to Junior High boys for several years. He loved Colorado. Nearly every summer he would pack up the family and take a trip to the mountains. As the children grew older, he enjoyed taking the family on camping trips and water skiing on lakes throughout the Midwest. After retirement he remodeled one house in Lecompton, Kansas and built one house in Tecumseh, Kansas. He also built two more houses in Prescott, Arizona and lived there until 2015 when they moved to Olathe. Wendell and Ruby loved traveling in Arizona and seeing the sights; then they took visiting friends and family to see them too. God blessed them with 21 grandchildren (including spouses) and 25 great-grandchildren and one more on the way. Memorial services will be at 11:00 am Saturday, August 5, 2017 at the College Church of the Nazarene, Olathe, KS., with Pastor Dan Vanderpool officiating. Visitation will be from 10:30 am until time of service. In lieu of flowers, donations are suggested to NativeAmericanChristianAcademy.org.
